His 550 hectare forest is now home to 115 rhinos, deers, elephants and tigers.
Payeng’s dream is to restore his home island of Majuli and neighboring Jorhat with the stunning forests that used to covered them a long time ago.
The natural beauty of his island was destroyed by human influence and agricultural development, but Payeng is not giving up and continues his work to restore the ecosystem.
